Actually, look at the Philips SBC HB550S battery, the black label on battery isn't going to the end of the battery's "-" side, there's few millimetres of solid metal. Look at other, ordinary rechargeable battery, for ex duracell's. This other battery has label all over battery (from "+" to "-"). So only thing you have to do to make any batteries work with you have to cut and remove this label from battery you want to use from the "-" side of the battery, about 1-2 cm, like philips one has. It's because these headphones have this extra clip in battery sockets, philips wants us, customers, to buy those extra-expensive batteries. That's as simple as it is! Hope it helps you, it definitely helped me.

My HTS8100 2 yrs ago stopped working properly, sound was on its max and little was heard. Well after searching for solutions and took it for repair which was a waste, my brother came from Australia for a holiday who is a technician and fixed it for me. The problem is in the subwoofer, I am uploading a photo where this part is , STRX6759 SANKEN INTEGRATED CIRCUIT STRX6759. Its behind that capasitor. When I changed it the sound worked. Hope you will find it useful.

There is a 1ohm resistor on the 4x4 pcb as soon as you take off the cover. ( I forget the ID # ) It supplys the -15volts to the control bd. The resistor will not looked burned. It was under rated. An ohm meter will find it ( open ). Rreplace it with a 1/3 watt. I believe the orig. was a 1/4 watt.

I have a working power supply for your system.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

This music system is a basic setup so your choices are limited. You could try using a cable connection. The type you need is a "phono jack plug" to "3.5mm jack plug" cable. They are usually very cheap and most TV and Technology Stores will keep them in stock. The cable has different styles of connector at each end. One end is the same as the round red and white plugs at the top of the photograph and the other end is a standard headphones connector. Plug the red and white pair into an 'Audio In' position on the back of the system and the other end into the headphone hole on your mobile phone. (Try the position above the two already in the system). Select the channel on the system for that connector and press play on your mobile device.>

For connecting a soundbar to the TV, you have several ways. If you don't want to use the HDMI option, you need to go high-tech with a wireless connection. Another way is to use Aux or RCA cables.

I think you need a third party software, just convert your videos to the format which support by your player.
Here is a detail tutorial about how to convert almost all popular video formats even high definition video for playback on your portable multimedia players such as iPod touch/video/nano/classic, Zune, iPhone, Apple TV, PSP, Xbox 360, PS3, Archos, iRiver PMP Player, Creative Zen, Pocket PC, and Mobile Phone etc.

Normally a dvd player shows the message NO DISC when,
1. The disc inserted is bad.
2 The lase pickup unit inside the dvd lost its reading intensity, dirty lens or the spindle motor damaged .

In your case the second one happened. the intensity of the laser pickup unit has lost or the spindle motor faulty or there is some dust on its lens. just insert a cleaning cd in it for two or three times. then check again is the DVD is reading or not

if the problem remains then you have to check the motor and the laser pickup unit. the lase pickup unit have two laser emitter and receiver in its inside . one for reading and playing DVDs and the other for CD and MP3. also the spindle motor runs in different speed when u insert dvd and cd.

Open the cover of your dvd player and power it on insert an audio cd and watch is it reading or not also notice the speed of the spindling of the cd. if the audio cd reads and play. then the possible problem is the spindle motor

To conform it remove the audio cd and insert a dvd. watch the rotation of the dvd. if it feel very hard to rotate it then, the spindle motor is damaged. if so replace the spindle motor if it runs more the the speed of than audio cd then the laser pickup unit is faulty. Then u have to replace the laser pickup unit.
if you need any further assistance from me , feel free to contact me through fixya.

Hey, I am not sure about ubunta but in Windows, you need a program that "tags" the MP3. Just google MP3 tag editor and you will find some programs that do this. Again, not sure about ubunta but give it a shot. What this program does is let you edit the MP3 to the fullest. Song title, artist, album, everything...Check it out....
